Evel Knievel

Evel Knievel's son just broke one of his father's records. Well he better watch out, this little guy has no fear! Now I thought my son had no fear when it came to the ocean, but this little guy was unbelievable! Despite the beach being super crowded (it's Memorial Day Weekend) I know we came away with some wonderful memories.





This one is hand down my favorite from the session!

I'm so excited to announce that there are a whole bunch of changes going on here at Candids by Courtney Photography. First and foremost I'm unveiling a brand new website on June 1 (fingers crossed!) I can't even begin to tell you how psyched I am about it. It's absolutely beautiful and super professional looking. With the new website also comes a new pricing structure. (fancy talk meaning "prices are going up") With that being said, if you book now before June 1, regardless of when your session date is you'll receive current pricing for both your session and prints!!! So if you've even been thinking of scheduling that way overdue family photo session now's the time to do it!!! Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today!! :) Also, I'll be taking a maternity leave from November 1-January 1. For those of you who didn't know "I'm preggers!" Unfortunately though, that was my busiest time of the year last year. So if you're going to wait till last minute for family photographs for your Holiday Cards, you'll be out of luck!!! No reason why you can't take care of that daunting holiday chore this summer or early fall! I offer some very cool custom holiday cards all year long! Just think, you can start the holiday season knowing that your holiday cards are complete and finished! One less thing to worry about!

Keep an eye out in your inbox! I'll be sending out an email to announce the unveiling of the new site! I do hope you'll take the time to stop by and say, "Hi!" In the meantime the old site is still live and well, and you can always check out sneak peaks from my latest sessions here at my blog, on to something more fun and exciting. Owen and I had the most wonderful playdate this morning at TY Park's Castaway Island with some of our closest friends. TY Park's Castaway Island is a small age appropriate waterpark for the kiddos, and with three weeks left of school we were the ONLY people there! It was great! As an added bonus Owen took a 2 1/2 hour nap when we got home! Woo Hoo! But best of all, we got to hang out with some old friends, an old client, and even a future client. Here are just a few of my faves from the morning!

FYI.......Castaway Island is an awesome place to have a family photo session!! Do something out of the norm!! Not only will your pictures be amazing, you'll have fun at the same time!!!!

Of course I have to begin with a picture of my little guy!

His little girlfriend!

Not only do I get to photograph the cutest kiddies, but some pretty hot mommas as well!





Life's a Beach!

Life is a beach!! What a whirlwind of a weekend this was. Lenny had been working tirelessly on a case that was set to go to trial this past Friday. Well late Thursday afternoon they settled. (woo hoo!) So Lenny took Friday off from work and we packed up the fam for our first trip to Disney!!!! What an amazing trip. Now we have traveled quite alot since Owen was born, but we both thought that this was really the first trip that we all could really enjoy together. We spent Friday at Animal Kingdom and Saturday at the Magic Kingdom (pictures to come!). I think we might become a "Disney Family". (god help us! hehe) We've already booked our next trip to Disney World for September. We can't wait.
Anyway, I got home Sunday just in time to shoot the "F" family. They are also a fellow Disney Family. Little "A" channels Princess Ariel, and a princess she is!

One..Two...Buckle My Shoe

I knocked on the door to start the session and as soon as Mom opened it we realized we had gone to college together! It's a small world! I love running into people! Well this family has the CUTEST 11 month old, little "A". They have their house for sale and is even contemplating moving on down to my beloved Hollywood! Hooray!

Mother's Day

Well of course everyday is mother's day, but this one is more meaningful to this family as it's one week before the birth of their long awaited second son!!
